Anybody know what a baggywrinkle is?
Send me your daffynitions, please
Ok - hand on heart, how many of you instantly had exactly the same thought as me?
But that's not it!
I assumed not. I'll post some things it also isn't later.
(And as a secondary question, is there anyone out there who is thinking "what 'same thought'?")
I didn’t have that thought until just now that I see pointed out that I should have.
On the other hand I was also surprised to learn the street meaning of “teabagging.”
Musta had a sheltered upbringing.
The Tea Party Republicans started out calling themselves "Teabaggers" until the snickers and guffaws started pouring in. Talk about sheltered lives...
Only two entries thus far. Kalleh? B35? Shufitz? Tinman? Anybody?
Sorry, Geoff. Getting it off now.
Did you mean to post you call for more entries over in "Community"?
I guess the "Community" post was dual-purpose.
I DO need more daffynitions! Come one, come all - hang your baggywrinkles out in the frosty air for all to see!
Well, it's hard to daffine "Baggywrinkle"
When my car just got et by a sinkhole
So I'll scream and I'll shout
Till they come pull me out.
Now excuse me, I have to go tinkle.
(Somebody has just too much time on his hands...)
I would think that if you were in your car at the time, going tinkle would have been an autonomic reflex.
I thought sinkholes primarily ate Floridians.
Baggywrinkle daffynitions, and the real one:
1. Circus jargon for over-size clown trousers.
2. A foolish or inconsequential person - based on an old music hall ventriloquists act featuring a large and wrinkled cat named Baggywrinkle.
3. A nickname for certain species of monkey found in South East Asia.
4 A bait especially used for hunting grenouilles on the Bayou
5 vernacular for crepey skin
6 Australian word for raisin
7 a used condom
8 Australian slang term for a marsupial's pouch
9 A pad to prevent chafing from sailboat lines and ropes
10 A treasure hunt game of fairy tales.
Somewhere in this collection is the real baggywrinkle. Which is it?
Although it doesn’t sound remotely plausible number 9 is also the only one that doesn’t sound completely ridiculous so I’ll go for that one.
Since nobody's playing I'll reveal that Bob's correct. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baggywrinkle
Sorry to see this site go, but go it has.
Sorry I missed this, but I haven't linked to the real answer - I am back and forth between 3 and 10. I'll choose 3.
Ah well. Missed it!
